FAQs on Cellulaze
What is Cellulaze™?
Cellulaze™ is a laser procedure that is done to break up the
structure of tight connective fibers underneath the skin that results
in the development of cellulite. This minimally invasive treatment
provides effective results.
Is Cellulaze™ right for me?
Cellulaze™ is best for women with mild to moderate cellulite
on their buttocks and thighs. This procedure uses a small cannula that
delivers laser energy to break up connective fibers, which cause
cellulite to form. Patients will notice a considerable reduction in
cellulite after treatments.
Does Cellulaze™ work?
Cellulaze™ has been proven to provide safe, effective
results for patients who have tried other treatments without results,
including special massage therapy and even topical creams. Results are
consistent when patients use Cellulaze™.
How invasive is this procedure?
Cellulaze™ is minimally invasive and uses small incisions in
the skin to ease the cannula in to break up the fibers. Patients do not
need to stay in the hospital or undergo general anesthesia, as local
anesthetics are all that are necessary to make patients comfortable.
Do I need several treatments?
Results are achieved with just one treatment of Cellulaze™.
Patients will find that not only will they notice considerable
improvement right after their procedure, but results will continue to
improve over the next year.
What is necessary for recovery?
Cellulaze™ is a minimally invasive treatment but there are
still after-care instructions that patients should follow. It is normal
to experience some bruising, redness, and tenderness in the area for a
day or two after treatment, and compression garments may be suggested
for up to a week after treatment to enhance the results. Patients may
also want to visit with Dr. Christine Lee for a follow-up appointment to
make sure the incision areas are healing appropriately.
How do I get started?
